Taryn and David engaged…

The 2010 wedding season starts with Taryn and David’s engagement shoot, here in San Francisco. They’ve wisely planned their wedding a year in advance, and so we first met them last summer. It was easy to instantly tell that these two have that special connection. Their wedding is still a ways out, but it stands to be a grand time. We’re honored to be a part of their team! Congrats Taryn and David! Next up… the big day!

Annie and Laurent’s Wedding in Sausalito…

Being the international couple that they are, Annie and Laurent’s friends and family flew in to San Francisco from all corners of the world to celebrate their wedding. And you can’t ask for a more picturesque backdrop than being under the shadow of the Golden Gate Bridge, where historic Fort Baker has been preserved and restored into Cavallo Point Lodge. Their beautiful outdoor ceremony was set under the eucalyptus trees, where emotions ran high as they exchanged vows and rings. In the end, all that energy was released when the music was cranked up, and everyone danced down the isle off to the reception in one of the beautifully restored officers quarters. Congratulations Annie and Laurent! A big thank you for sharing your day with us!

Maria and Brandon, engaged…

It’s Maria and Brandon! A fun couple having a fun time with their engagement shoot. They met in their college days back in Virginia, where legend has it that Brandon asked Maria not for her phone number, but for her IM info. How hip! Apparently it worked, since a few years later, it led to a (non-IM based!) proposal on a beautiful Maui beach. Congrats Maria and Brandon!

Kalani and Joe get hitched…

Kalani and Joe’s big day finally arrives! As you can see, Kalani was absolutely radiant, and Joe was whippin’ up the smiles — which his friends tease him about for doing so rarely! Months of planning came together at the stylish Hotel Valencia in Santana Row in San Jose. Outdoors, in the late afternoon of another unusually warm Saturday, Kalani and Joe exchanged vows in front of friends and family — including some that traveled from Korea to be with them. Even their pup Scooby was part of the festivities and did an excellent job as the ring bearer. After the ceremony and a delicious dinner, Kalani and Joe’s wild and crazy wedding party assured everyone was going to have a grand time for the rest of the night.  There was dancing. There was cake. There was even some totally retro 80′s break dancing by Joe himself. In all, it was an outstanding day, capped off by one of Joe’s favorite pleasures — a midnight run to Jack in the Box! Congratulations Kalani and Joe! Thank you for sharing so much with us.
